A HashMap bug with a Proxy value?

Hi Jing LV,
As for your patch of HashMap I think we shouldn't do this. There are a lot of places in code where we assume that every object equals to itself, not only in HashMap (e.g. ArrayList.indexOf()).
In you case I believe that InvocationHandler impl is broken because it written that way that violates contract of hashCode()/equals().

Hello, is there any other comments on this issue? Can someone help
raise a bug on Sun's bug system? Thanks.

Thanks for information. I've raised a new bug on openjdk
bug system (https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/show_bug.cgi?id=100165)
with testcase and patch.

The ProxyGenerator could safely add byte codes to
1. Handle the null case per contract: false, NPE, call handler.
2. Proxy == Argument: true, 0, 0
3. Proxy.getClass() == Argument.getClass() && Proxy.h ==
The problem is short circuit operations nor return value
overrides are not allowed per the Proxy contract: "A method
invocation on a proxy instance through one of its proxy
interfaces will be dispatched to the invoke method of the
instance's invocation handler...the result that it returns will
be returned as the result of the method invocation on the proxy
I think for most equality checks, short circuit would be for the
most part safe since most Collections all ready do such
checks but, it requires a change to the Proxy contract which
presents a compatibility problem.

Seems like the identity check would be a win: http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6486197
